Akouwa's story

Akouwa is 35 years old. She is widowed and has 4 children, 3 of whom go to school. The eldest is 14 and the youngest 1.

Akouwa sells yams and corn to all sorts of people in a bus terminal in the town of Lomé, so that she is able to meet her children's needs.

This is Akouwa 's first loan from WAGES and she is requesting it so that she can buy some yams. She wishes to reinvest in her business and ensure its prosperity. She would also like to see her family flourish.
